161  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Re: Garden Bricks on: August 06, 2004 11:22:19 PM
Thanks Beccajo! That helped. I finally went and bought the cement they have at Michael's Craft (I'm impatient) and that worked, but I didn't get too much - only 8 lbs for $8 dollars. I'll try Home Despot again tomorrow and look for the smooth cement.

One more question: What should the consistency of the cement be when I start stamping? It seems that it is either too soft (and my letters mush right in there) or too hard and the cement cracks a bit around the edges of the letter. Is is just me, or is this a bit trickier than it looks?

I am in awe of you other crafsters - you make it look so easy!

Hmmm. I bought Quikrete, but it doesn't seem to be the right stuff - it's very chunky and I don't think the bricks are going to turn out smooth, let alone take the imprint of the letters. That's what I get for being cheap and not buying the kit! But I did think I wanted to make quite a few of these (we're repaving the backyard). Can anyone help me with what type of concrete mix to buy?
163  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knit Elvis Wig on: January 29, 2004 07:51:54 PM
I don't knit, but if I did, I would make this! It's a free pattern from THE SHED, which appears to be some kind of British poetry, music and knitting collaborative.http://www.theshed.co.uk/elviswig.html

I can't get the picture to post, but it's an Elvis wig that is knitted! Think of it!

These are so cute! A while ago I spent about $6 EACH on bottle cap magnets from Albuquerque artist Goldie Garcia (www.goldiegarcia.com). Not to put her out of business, but I have been dying to make my own and now I know how! Thank you Crafster!

Hello! I got really excited about this project, but when I went to get the glass marbles, they only had really small ones at Target and Michael's and really BIG ones at JoAnn's - the small one is about 3/4" and the big one is approx. 1.5" (see photo).
The one with a design in the middle is one that I bought for $5 from Albuquerque artist Goldie Garcia, who does magnets and bottle cap art. Check her out at www.goldiegarcia.com for more inspirations.

My question is: which would be better for the magnets? Which are y'all using? Or should I try some of both?

Thanks!
